Personas are essential for building empathy and giving a better understanding of a user's needs. That's why it's important to keep an image of your persona nearby, during a workshop with your team or a presentation to customers or stakeholders.

UXPressia allows you to export your personas (in single or multiple view).ย 

Exported PDFs are vector based which means they do not lose in quality when scaled. So you can print your personas on really large posters. Just take the PDF to a printing shop and choose the size you want.

But sometimes it happens, that there is no opportunity to print the map on A0/ A1, while A4 is too small. And here is a workaround that comes to the rescue.

Use Adobe Acrobat for printing (actually, others might work too, but we use Adobe internally). It allows you to break a large PDF into smaller pieces, print them one piece per sheet, and then put those pieces together.

When you open the Print menu click on Poster button. This mode splits the page into custom tiles. Here's what it looks like:

That way you can have a big readable persona on multiple sheets that you can put together. This is the easiest and fastest way and we use it ourselves.

Try it, and let us know what you think ๐Ÿ˜‰
